Telstra's 4G Covers 65% of Australian Population, 85% by Year-End

As of mid-year, Telstra's 4G services were available to 66 percent of the Australian population.  So far, Telstra has deployed more than 2,000 4G base stations in all of the country's capital cities and many surrounding metropolitan suburbs.  Telstra had 20MHz of contiguous spectrum in the 1800MHz band in Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth and 15MHz in Sydney and Melbourne.

By year-end, Telstra aims to make 4G available in more than 300 towns across Australia, including many popular holiday hotspots.  By then, there should be more than 3,500 4G base stations in operation.
